The Dodgers got their man, which they tend to do these days.
They announced during their game Tuesday against the Rockies that they had come to terms with first-round draft pick Grant Holmes, a right-handed pitcher from Conway High School in South Carolina.
The Dodgers have signed every first-round pick since 2005, when they failed to sign pitcher
Holmes received more than $2.4 million for signing, according to a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly.
Holmes, who is 6 feet 1 and 215 pounds, was the South Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year. He struck out 82 in 40 innings his senior season.
